asked the Secretary of State for War if he will investigate complaints, details of which have been sent to him, that personnel of Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, No. 2 Base Workshops, Middle East Land Forces, are ordered compulsory sport while it is too hot to work; and in particular, the case of the soldier who died as a result of a route march in heat conditions.

I have been unable to trace the details referred to or any other similar complaints, but from inquiries I have made of this unit I can find no basis for this complaint or of the statement that a soldier died as a result of a route march.
